Well, it's dark in the city
I've lost my pride
The lights in the streets hide the stars from my eyes

It's been a long, long time coming
But I know that change is gonna come

And it's too hard living
But I'm afraid to die
Cause I don't know what's up there
Just beyond the sky

It's been a long, long time coming
But I know that change is gonna come

And I miss my family
My little girl
She is my princess
I'd give her the world

It's been a long, long time coming
But I know that change is gonna come

I just need some comfort
Some kind of belief
That this war we're fighting
Can really bring some peace

There's no rhyme nor reason
Or sweet melody
More and more weapons
mean less security

It's been a long, long time coming
But I know that change is gonna come

And I've tried to find it
Some better place
Where having the biggest gun
ain't some kind of race

It's been a long, long time coming
But I know that change is gonna come

There's been times I thought
I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able
To carry on

It's been a long, long time coming
But I know that change is gonna come

It's been a long, long time coming
But I know that change is gonna come

Yes, a change is gonna come
